What's your real cost?

Some business owners think that not getting paid for the odd job is simply part of being in business and write it off as part of their tax return to the IRD.  Here, we illustrate the impact that not getting paid for a job has on your business and the importance of ensuring you are paid for your hard work.

It’s not just the cost of the goods and/or services that you have provided.

The real cost is the value of the additional jobs that you need to complete and be paid for in order to get back to a position of breaking even on the initial unpaid job.

Calculate your real cost.

The calculator below shows the real cost of not being paid. Enter the chargeable amount of the job and the profit margin percentage on that job. Our calculator will do the rest.

  • Please enter a number from 0 to 9999999.
  • Please enter a number from 0 to 100.
  • Profit Margin $
  • Cost of Job $
  • Additional Revenue Required to pay back the money lost on the above job $

Time to ensure your business is protected.

How would your business be impacted in the event that someone doesn’t pay you? Here at EC Credit Control, we see a lot of businesses unnecessarily stressed due to being put into this position through no fault of their own.

EC Credit Control were amazing to deal with Quick and Efficient, I sent a email, I was emailed back saying they had forwarded within 30 minutes of sending it and within minutes of that email I had a call. From there it was easy, I explained what I needed what industry I required it for and they sorted everything.
